Dear Members,

As you have probably heard by now, health care personnel need N95 face masks. On Tuesday, March 17, Vice President Mike Pence urged construction companies to donate construction-grade N95 masks and forego additional orders as the nation’s hospitals work to procure masks for healthcare workers.

We were contacted that afternoon, along with AGC of Mississippi and a large Mississippi-based construction company, asking for donations as well. If you have extra N95 masks that you can donate, please take to one of the drop-off points listed below.

Also, just to be clear, Sherry spoke to the local OSHA director, Courtney Bohannon on Thursday, March 19 concerning their stance on the N95 shortage. Currently, their offices are still making site visits, therefore all OSHA standards are in full force in their entirety.

This is an urgent need and we hope some of you can assist with this request.

Kind Regards,
